    Split up the group or interviewees - 1/2 of people did an interactive activity while the other 1/2 interviewed for various positions. We were given a tour of the office and it was nice to chat with our potential colleagues. Overall a great interview experience.

    Research Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Initiative (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Similar to other interview processes I have completed, you start with an HR screener, and if you proceed past that point, you'll meet people who you would directly report to. I met three or four different people on the team in my series of interviews, and would recommend to others that they try to talk to a few different people as well.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember specific questions, but I will say as someone who also interviewed candidates, we didn't have a specific guide or script. At a junior level like this role, it's best to talk about your interest in advertising/marketing/market research.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Initiative (Chicago, IL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Initiative.

    After applying for a month, I got the phone interview from HR asking some basic behavioral questions. Then I got an in-person interview meeting with five team members. Both people and the office were very welcoming. And the conversation was more like a conversation than strict Q&A. There were also a few technical questions.

    Very quick and straightforward interview process. Had an HR phone screening for first stage then was brought in for a 2 on 1 interview with various teams a few weeks later. Asked questions 50% of the time and interviewers explained more of job duties versus asking about my qualifications.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    It was a rather streamlined and simple interview process. I was first phone screened by their HR generalist and then brought in for an in-person interview where I met both the VP and Digital Supervisor. Very standard questions, nothing out-of-the-blue or terribly difficult. I was presented with an offer in a week.
